Default B-max And The Bravo Shop May As Well Be Done

I WENT TO FORT MYERS LAST WEEK TO SEE FOR MY SELF WHAT WAS GOING ON DOWN THERE, AND TRY TO GET WHAT THEY OWED ME IN PARTS FOR A LONG TIME. THERE WAS NOTHING IN HIS BUILDING WORTH PUTTING IN A DRIVE. OR ANYTHING HE OWED ME. IT'S TOO BAD HE DID THIS TO HIMSELF BY LYING, NOT RETURNING CALLS, KEEPING DRIVES FOR MONTHS WITHOUT FIXING THEM,ECT. MANY OF YOU CALLED ME AND I HELPED YOU THE BEST I COULD. OR I FIXED YOUR DRIVE AND I DID NOT GET PAID FOR WARRANTY ON YOUR DRIVE. I HAVE WORKED WITH THE BRAVO SHOP SINCE 2001 HELPING SOLVE PROBLEMS AND REPAIR IN THE GREAT LAKES AREA. I HAD A B-MAX BOOTH IN MY AREA BOAT SHOWS 2 YEARS IN A ROW AND MET A LOT OF YOU. I HAVE REENGINEERED THE INTERNAL PARTS AND PRODUCED THEM. I HAVE ALL THE PARTS TO REPAIR B-MAX DRIVES IN STOCK ALONG WITH A FEW TOTALLY REFURBED DRIVES FOR SALE. I WILL MAKE SURE THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF REPAIR PARTS. AS EVERYBODY KNOWS WHO HAS DEALT WITH ME [B]I ANWSER MY PHONE! AND RETURN CALLS!! AND I NEVER LIE TO YOU!![B]
I AM LOOKING FOR USED OR BROKEN B-MAX DRIVES TO PURCHASE FOR REFURB AND RESALE. THIS DRIVE DOE'S HAVE A PLACE IN HIGH PERFORMANCE, AND DOES WORK. MY BOAT WILDTHING WOULD NEVER HAVE RUN ALL THE POKER RUNS WITH YOU GUYS IF IT WASN'T FOR B-MAX.

Ron, it's good to know you're going to still provide parts and service for Bmax drives. It may end up being a good opportunity for you. You treated me right when I needed help, your good service is appreciated.

Ron I'm glad your keeping it going and stocking parts. Here's that thread I started I told ya about,Hopefully things will pick up.

Its a shame your situation with Dean. He had allways taking care of me over the years.But His costumer service just wasn't there.

Ron , shoot me a few pics to my email of some of the parts you are selling . I have some gear cutting machines (as well as hobs) at my disposal. Also have some CNC , maybe a shot in the dark , but possible i could help produce somthing.

Ron, any luck you could get the rights to the BMax? If he cared enough to close up shop, why would he care what's done with it going forward... Hell, even if royalties had to be paid to him, I'm sure it could be profitable.

I agree it has a place in HP boating and with the right management and R&D, I really think it can/will be a success! Lord knows I don't want to work with IMCO again after the way they treated me back then...
